If you aren't familiar....

I've ridden Tail of the Dragon twice, once on my Supermoto last summer, and then again that same summer on my dirt bike on my way out to SF where I live now. I'm never riding a dirt bike limited to 55mph across Kansas ever again.

4x4 vans are way cheaper in CO and the east coast than they are here in CA, all the ones around here are $20-30k for 150-250k miles

+3 on MG's Kit. If you bought Eric's van you'd be a head of the game

I completely feel your pain. I got fired up about building a street legal enduro bike once and proceeded to ride it hours to the trails, shred all day and then ride it hours home. This beat me up in a way I cannot begin to explain. I'm sure Kansas on a dual-sport/whatever was worse. I went back to trailering or carrying my bikes in a van pretty quickly.

Seriously though, we have an airport and I will have a nice, converted
V10 Ford on the market in the next few weeks with only 80k. Price is going to be in the low 20's and it will be ready to go. I'm not leaning on you to look at something long distance if you aren't interested. It's an iffy proposition, always. Mine will find a home and you will find what you need. Lots of great vans out there right now.
